Graphics Card Dilemma

I installed a new graphics card into my computer. Both cards are NVidia and are not running together. I uninstalled the old graphics card in add/remove programs and switched to onboard graphics so I could see. Upon installing the new graphics card I turned on the computer with the onboard graphics turned on. Should I disable the onboard graphics before of after installing the new graphics card software?

Remove drivers,shut down instal graphics card boot up and enter bios disable onboard graphics carry on booting then instal new drivers.

I would disable the on board graphics - do not reboot yet- then uninstall the drivers. Turn off and put new card in. Boot up and Windows should tell you it has found new hardware. Take it from there.

Disable onboard graphics first in BIOS and then fit your new graphics card. When you boot up the computer it will detect the new graphics card and load the basic drivers. Then you can load the drivers from the cd supplied with the graphics card.
